I watched part of the first episode of this season’s TV show “Scrubs.” Which I heartily do not recommend.
I’m not reviewing the show. I’m reviewing one line in the show. A doctor says something along the lines of: Due to insurance companies and malpractice lawyers, this profession is soul-sucking.
I won’t address the insurance company thing, but the lawyer thing bugs me. Even if we only talk about the frivolous suits, the lawyers shouldn’t be the sole target.
For the record: Malpractice lawyers don’t sue doctors. Patients sue doctors.
guns don’t kill people, people kill people guns don’t shoot people, people shoot people (with guns, not crossbows),” the problem wouldn’t disappear if we magically removed all the lawyers in the world. There would still be people, without lawyers, suing doctors to turn a misfortune into a payday.]
Are aggressive lawyers part of the problem? Sure. But I don’t think we should blame them without even mentioning the people they represent. So not only is Scrubs unwatchable from an aesthetic point of view (despite the very cute Australian med student), it’s annoying from a philosophical one.
